The coaching profession has pressures like few others. You're constantly game-planning, reviewing game film, building your roster and facing the "win at all costs" attitude of your supporters, all while trying to maintain personal integrity. Add to that the fact that the idea of "hired to be fired" is very real, even when you've done nothing wrong. Bruce Pielstick faced all of that, and came back for more. But nothing affected him like the news that his wonderful wife, Lisa, was diagnosed with cancer. A punch to the gut, Pielstick was knocked down but not out. He reacted like he did with every other situation--good and bad--in his life to that point. He turned to God. As he went through this journey, he was searching for answers in every way he knew. He read Scriptures, he spoke with Godly friends he trusted, and he prayed a lot. Finally, he realized that God was teaching him through it, and he hoped that God would reveal what He wanted from him. His dream-chasing seemingly had come to an end, so he wondered what could be next for his family. Looking back, he realized that God wanted to use him in a new way, and He wanted him to write everything down, so he did. This book is the result. After reading the manuscript, his childhood friend and teammate, T.D. White, said, "(This book) is forged from the real-life fire of Bruce Pielstick's life, his football coaching career, the romance and battle against cancer with his high school sweetheart, and seeing how God still has a plan to win when it looks like cancer has taken its final victory lap. I am a lifelong admirer of this one-in-a-million coach, who is also the most determined receiver any quarterback ever threw to." After reading this book, you'll be inspired to pick yourself up and get back into whatever battle you're facing. And you'll be motivated to do with all your Heart, Soul, Mind & Strength.
